DESTINIA: Android game


One of the best features I like for Android phone, is the free apps in Android Market. Spending time waiting someone or spending time just for waiting? Then probably you would like to play a game with your Android phone.

I like to play RPG games with good drawing for the characters, especially Japanese manga liked characters. Android Market provides several free games fulfil my taste. Try this, DESTINIA, you might like it. But this is ARPG.

da download


OK… another not so big deal (since when there’re “big deal” posts anyway??) post…
see… I was talking to my brother the other day, about downloader in linux (particularly ubuntu, that I’m using),
then, my brother recommended me to try out jdownloader
especially, sometimes, I use the firefox flashgot, and sometimes, it failed to resume,
normally I do download clips from youtube, and so on, those with flash player…
so, this one fine day, when I’m so fed up with flashgot,
I went online and search for jdownloader,
ooh… it’s not in the usual ubuntu software center…
so, I search…
(ok, you can find out from the link, and see how to do the installation, even tech-dumb people like me, will be able to install…)
there, I can download easily…
but according to my brother, he uses it, for download like megaupload, and rapidshare… (which I rarely use though…)

FatRat: GUI download manager you might like


In the previous post, I wrote about aria2, a command-line downloader. But, still I need a better downloader in graphical user interface. Because I have the problem to download a large file from SourceForge.net. Multi-segmented downloading in SourceForge.net servers always fail, so I need to add more mirrors for multi-segmented download. However, this does not work well with aria2.

So, I tried to find any application from Arch Linux, then I found FatRat. It is from Community repository, not AUR. Once I use it, I liked it. Because I can manage the download easier. Besides that, FatRat can work with FlashGot (Firefox extension).

(Just now I tried to copy image from GIMP and paste into WordPress TinyMCE here, can see the image, but the whole post i spoiled. So, I need to upload the image.)

Google Reader Shortcut Keys


since I’ve been wondering if there is,
and since I’ve found one (my brother helped me to find one, which I should have done it myself, but I just can’t be bother, cos, I thought, the answer should be very easy to be obtained… ^_^)
I’ve been “complaining” in a way, over reading my subscriptions in google reader vs. ipad’s MobileRSS
the main reason, I prefer the latter over the former, is that, I can just swipe and go next…
whenever I’m on google reader, I find “scrolling down” the page very tedious, especially sometimes, I just want a quick peak…
ok, I’m slow, I should have thought of the “next item” thing…
and it’s just there, the arrow button… on the top right corner…
but then, is there any shortcut key?
I asked, (asked my brother first, since he’s such a geek!)
there come the answer, I know I know, it’s already there in the very beginning…
and probably all of you already know, but if there’s anybody out there, just like me…
this is the answer for you and me…

Some Cam Apps… ooh~


I’ve been using my android, for how many months? maybe 9 months, maybe more, can’t really remember when I actually purchased my Garmin-Asus A10… (it’s bad that, 2 of them decided to “divorce”… I actually like this phone very much!)
anyway, besides, it’s a little bit (a little bit only, ^_^) slow in terms of typing, as compared to the new android versions, (on almost all the samsung droids) and iOS (of course, they’re just plain FAST! my husband complained about the typing…)
I seriously like my droid… as compared to my iPod…
iPod, after a while, you’re just soooooooooooo bored of the interface, the look and feel, or the touch and feel… and the rest of the things you do, is just keep visiting the apps store, to see if there’re newer apps, or more interesting apps to be downloaded, that’s all…
while with android… well… in the end, seems like it’s the same, but then, the apps… in a way, looks more interesting to me, (well, some apps, and of course, some apps lack…)
and also, I love it the way, it’s tied to my gmail/google accounts…
all contacts, all docs, all calendar sync seamlessly…
and most of the FREE apps that I’ve got, are just good enough as FREE…
you get it??
as for the cameras…
well, I’ve been mentioning to my friends, or my brother… to try out these apps…
I actually like them, the effect of it, and as FREE, the options provided… (good enough, seriously)
most often, I use FxCamera, cos, it’s kinda faster (in terms of the touch and sensitivity, and the ease of use) and mostly, I just have to pick the “polaroid” option… pick the option, and snap, and then, “save”, the time lapsed in between these steps, is minimal… (remember? I said, my phone’s older version of android, I think, it’s 2.1, unupgradeable, unless, I hack it, or whatever-it… which, I don’t want to bother, and of course, I don’t really know how…)
this apps, have more effect, and I particularly like the “Effects” like “Japanese Style”, sometimes, the “Magic Colour”, and now, newly added (for FREE, you know~~~~~~) “Magic Skin”, what more to say… before, I’ve updated this apps, there’s only 1 option in each effect… but then, to my surprise, (of course, the good good way) is that, all these “effects” that I’ve mentioned, within the “effects”, now, they’ve more options for you to save your photos… FREE, ok????? what more to ask??? HOWEVER~~~~~~~~ one thing to highlight, particularly on my phone, somehow the touch and effect is a little bit slower… for don’t know what reason, which is, whenever I touch the “snap” button, it just doesn’t sense my touch… you get the frustration in there?? anyway, if I’m taking still photos, or my daughter doesn’t move around too much, I actually prefer to use this apps, as there’re so many “effects” to be applied to my photos…
and today, I’ve just tried this apps, again…
I’ve not been using this apps often, to me, it’s a photographing apps if I need to take continuous photos of my constantly moving daughter… (sometimes, she refused to stay still to let me take a picture of her… well… which kid does?)
but then, today, I “took” it out again, and try using it… ok… after being upgraded, same as the Camera360 case, there’re newer “effect” too, being added to this apps… Try it!!! hm… the touch and sensitivity, I’ve to say, it’s not as bad as the Camera360, and what more to say, as I mentioned, it’s good to be used to take “Action” pictures… therefore, it doesn’t matter much if my daughter’s constantly moving around…
(you can view my chinese blogs to see the photos that I’ve uploaded there, of my daughter…)

evernote, I damn love~


that I can write my notes, my thoughts,
in bed…
while accompanying baby… when she’s there playing and I’m sitting here,
when I’m on the move, in the car…
cos I don’t have a data plan,
and I also do not like to blog on the go… ie. I’m the type who’ll rather type, read again, or edit again, make sure everything’s alright (well, not so serious actually…) and then, only publish it…
therefore, evernote is just THERE for me…
I’ve mentioned before…
I could jot down notes (even include some health related articles, or recipes, or parenting tips…) on my iPad,
or my droid,
or my ipod,
or my windows PC…
or my ubuntu notebook… (except this one, they do not have an apps for linux/ubuntu, the rest, there’s an installer, there’s apps…)
what other apps do I need now??
